Car Accident Attorney Helping the Injured for More Than 25 Years
Americans’ view on drunk driving has evolved and continues to evolve rapidly. Many of us have watched, appalled, as Cary Grant or other star of a classic movie from as late as the 1960s or later downs a series of cocktails, hops into his car and screeches off as his friends smile and wave. We know now what earlier generations did not: drunk driving is serious and it kills.
Unfortunately, despite publicity and public awareness, drunk driving remains an epidemic across America. As the State of New Jersey Department of Law and Public Safety points out on its Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over web page, almost 9,000 individuals between the ages of 21 and 34 were killed in drunk driving-related accidents in 2009. And that’s just a small percentage of the population.
At the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm in New Jersey, we think that when you are injured or lose a loved one to a drunk driver, you deserve the most effective, dedicated and knowledgeable legal assistance available. Turn to us for the results-driven and support legal representation you need following serious injuries.
A recent case illustrates our ability to obtain results for clients injured by drunk drivers. A client was injured for no reason other than that she was crossing the street at the same time a drunk driver turned the corner. The driver struck her, leading to internal injuries and the loss of one of her legs. The result of our representation? A judgment of $3.5 million.
Don’t let insurance companies tell you how much you are owed, and don’t settle for legal help that doesn’t taken into consideration your full loss following injuries, including pain and suffering, medical expenses, diminished earning capacity, lost wages and more.
